5 Ways to Save at Chuck E. Cheese
It’s the place your kiddos ask about when they think about having a fun day! If you pass by it, it will most certainly get a ‘Can we go there?!’ Chuck E Cheese has long been one of the most entertaining places to take your children, but it can really rack up a huge bill. Although the experience tends to be worth the money, that doesn’t mean that we can’t take some steps to save a bit of cash. Every little bit helps, right? We’ve put together some great tips to check out before your next adventure to Chuck E. Cheese so it doesn’t just become a place to go only for a birthday party or a once in a blue moon visit.
Here are five awesome ways to save cash when you visit Chuck E Cheese:
Coupons are readily available for Chuck E Cheese restaurants and you can really rack up the savings. The key is to look around for them in advance and find the ones that save you the most. (Generally you can’t stack them and use more than one at a time) The best places to find Chuck E Cheese coupons are newspapers, cereal boxes, kids stores, magazines and their website. You can visit there regularly to see what is available.
Buy Discounted Gift Cards
If you are willing to spend a bit of cash for a gift card, you can save a ton of cash through their discount program. Many people buy large dollar increments so that they get the maximum amounts and this works well if you visit often enough. This is especially well for a child’s birthday party. This bill could be in the 100s but the ability to save up to 20% off by buying a discounted gift card can take your money a lot futhur. One website I use to buy discounted gift cards is Raise.com.
Eat Before You Go
Although this might sound counterproductive, the truth is the food is optional at Chuck E Cheese. It is certainly not the most exciting part of the visit for the kids. Eat a little something before you come and you will save a ton of cash right off the bat.
Take Advantage of Free Refills and Share
If you are going to eat, while you certainly shouldn’t share drinks, it is perfectly fine to share food. One order is often enough for a few kids and you can buy each one a soda to get refills throughout the time they are there. There is certainly no need to buy large amounts of food when the kids are going to be focused on the games and so on anyway.
Visit the Website and Get on the Mailer List
As mentioned above, the website is a wonderful way to save cash. One of the best ways is to get on their mailing list. This way you will be getting notifications from them when they do something special. Chuck E Cheese always has something going on and this is a way to find out without having to think about visiting all the time.
Chuck E Cheese is a great place for kids to come and have a good time, but it can certainly be expensive if we don’t pay close attention. These steps should help you to stave off the costs and keep it affordable when you decide to visit.
